A man attacked three members of the French military on an anti-terror patrol near Consistoire Israélite de Nice, a Jewish community center in Nice, in the south of France. Two of the soldiers were wounded, French officials announced Tuesday.

The assailant was arrested and is in police custody. According to officials, two other people who were with the attacker fled the scene. The condition of the two wounded soldiers is not yet known.

Following Charlie Hebdo massacre and deadly siege on a Paris kosher supermarket last month, French military and police forces have been on high alert. Security has been elevated outside Jewish sites across the country.
